Slavery and the American Revolution

We  are offering a weekly 4 - part virtual series about Slavery and the American Revolution
every Tuesday, beginning November 10 at 12 p.m.
An invitation to join this online workshop will be sent to participants one day prior to the event.

Slavery and the American Revolution: Declaring Independence
Over long eight years of war, both the Continental Army and the British Army appealed to black Americans for manpower. This lecture argues that how African Americans responded to the call to arms and the chaos of war reveals their own declarations of independence. November 10. Register.

Slavery and the American Revolution: Claiming Legal Freedom
After the war, most northern states moved to abolish slavery. Similar proposals in the South faltered and failed, but, as this lecture demonstrates, enslaved people there took matters into their own hands and seized freedom for themselves. November 17. Register.

Slavery and the American Revolution: The Constitution's Counter-Revolution
This lecture explores the work done by the 1787 Constitution to repair the damage to the slave system wrought during the Revolutionary war. While the Constitution never used the word “slave,” it created a political system that protected and empowered enslavers. November 24. Register.

Slavery and the American Revolution: The Black Founders
This last lecture follows the struggles of Richard Allen and other first-generation free black leaders in northern cities as they built robust communities of faith and fellowship that could extend and expand the anti-racist fight beyond the legal end of slavery in the North. December 1. Register.
